Theme your Android phone or tablet with this collection of 40+ restored images from plates I - XV of Audubon's Birds of America.
John James Audubon determined to paint every bird in North America. In the 1820's he began this goal by securing financial backing, and from 1827 to 1838 published the prints in sets of five.
This live wallpaper gallery contains images from plates I-XV representing the first three sets issued. The various image sets all begin with the original full Audubon plate.
In addition to the birds, Audubon often depicted North American flora and fauna, often representing a wide variety of regional reptiles in the plates.
You can browse the settings page that gives the full historical title of the plate, and often gives the name of the plants, reptiles and insects also present in the image.
The original plates were produced on an ivory paper, that in many cases has darkened significantly over time. With these restored images, you can apply a number of tints to theme your display with your favorite color scheme. The tinting effect works best with lighter tints, but a reverse tinting effect is present that works best with darker tints.
Plates I-XV include depictions of the following birds:
1. Wild Turkey
2. Yellow-billed Cuckoo
3. Prothonotary Warbler
4. Purple Finch
5. Bonaparte's Flycatcher
6. Wild Turkey
7. Purple Grakle or Common Crow Blackbird
8. White throated Sparrow
9. Selby's Flycatcher
10. Brown Titlark
11. Bird of Washington
12. Baltimore Oriole
13. Snow Bird
14. Prairie Warbler
15. Blue Yellow-backed Warbler

More from developer
SeaSharp helps you to become familiar with:
· The pattern of lights shown on vessels at night.
· The shapes shown on vessels during the day.
· The colours and shapes of buoys as seen by day and night, including light patterns.
· Sound signals made by vessels in fog and on other occasions.
· How the IRPCS* should be applied to possible collision situations.
· The Beaufort scale, weather symbols and common meteorological terms.
The app can be used in pure revision mode, or to display multiple-choice options, with a scoring system – should you stay onshore, or are you “Sea Sharp”.
Please note that marine navigational systems are not standardised worldwide. Our understanding is that the cardinal system is universal, but the lateral system is divided into two regions. Most countries operate with the port (red) buoys showing on the left hand side when entering a channel with an incoming tide, but in the Americas, the system is reversed.
SeaSharp supports the IALA A, AND IALA B buoyage systems.
While every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of the information presented by this App, it should only be used as a learning aid, and not to replace course materials and official publications.
The developer welcomes any information about possible inaccuracies, and, of course, suggestions for improvements.

We would like to respond positively to any comments from users, and improve the app where possible. Currently, there are only two broadly negative reviews:
"Didn' t help, perhaps they inhabit adifferent part of the time space continuim"
Not sure how to respond here as there is very little to go on.
"Poor for a purchased App. As a professional mariner there are a lot of there are many points missing. This App needs much more work done on it."
A very frustrating comment from a developer viewpoint. The reviewer may have some valid criticisms, and the app could perhaps be improved by addressing the 'many points missing', but there is no clue as to what these might be.
His ideas are used to analyse interpersonal emotive relationships within a group.
Sociograms can help identify informal leaders, social rankings and isolated individuals.
This App allows you to enter, edit and store sociometric data in a database and to graphically analyse the results.
Four forms of sociogram can then be generated from the data.
You can interact with the graphical and diagrammatic output to further your study of the data and to improve the visual impact of the results by moving "nodes" about the display area.
The final layout can be sent as an email attachment.
